Interior Designer Francois Gilles

Francois Gilles is a designer who has been based in London for the past 25 years. Why do I just love his style??? Because in a parallel universe I would be doing what he is......  traveling through Morocco, owning a house in Tangiers and infusing every house I design with the exotic and sensuous colors and flavors of that country! Anyone who knows me even a little bit knows how much I love Morocco and anything even remotely Moroccan!

His interiors have a bold use of colour and texture, and their inherent French style clearly shows that  Francois' love of North Africa is an underlying influence in many projects.

Here are some images of his house......




And after a lot of patient internet surfing and dogged navigation, I found photos of an amazing Riad called Dar Louisa in Morocco, designed by him. 










And to top it all off, a couple of pics of Morocco!


And no, this won't be my last post on Morocco!
